1971 mustang pulls right under hard braking?

it has drum brakes all around. before i replaced the driver side wheel bearing it would pull left all the time under normal braking but now i replaced it and adjusted the drum brake it doesn't pull left anymore but now it pulls right, i'm gunna adjust the drum brake to see if it helps but would like to know if it could be anything else that cause it to pull right when braking hard, even doing like 3mph and slamming on brakes i could see the steering wheel start spinning right.

I think I answered this question already,but anyways you will need to get someone that knows how to set drum brakes,they are totally different from disk brakes and ever who you find to adjust them really needs to have the experience with drum brakes. I know that when setting them you need to have both front wheels off the ground,and first thing you do is loosen the brake shoes with the special tool called a brake spoon,loosen them enough so that you can spin the wheel freely then begin tightening them until you cant free spin it and go to the next wheel and do the same once you get them both set the same your problem will be solved.But you really need to get someone with the know how because these types of brakes are a whole different ballgame.

Try adjusting all four brakes and see if it still pulls to one side. If it does, I suspect a dragging caliper and or alignment.
